'Get Involved...' They Said

Posted 12 June 2012 - 06:07 PM

Hello new friends!

I'm a long time reader of various programming forums and the like, but for some reason I've never actually joined anything. The community here seems pretty friendly and switched on so I thought it about time to lose my .. uhm, well, take the plunge. I'm looking forward to the expertise and hopefully being able to contribute something at least.

Alright, onto the mildly embarassing, possible-troll list:

Name: Pete
Location: San Francisco (migratory New Zealander)
Age: 25
Sex: Boy
Education: Computer Science undergrad degree
Programming Languages: c#.net, c++ (current main interest, despite n00bish abilities), some java
Years Programming/Designing: 3-ish
Hobbies/Interests: climbing, mountain biking, music, coding
Favorite Bands: Pink Floyd, Tool, Sinatra
Favorite Movie: ummmmmm Into the Wild?
Favorite Number: 73
Favorite Beverage: Espresso
Favorite Food: Beer
Favorite Video Game: There was a 286 game with elevators that you had to run between, from one side of the screen to the other. The further up the building you got the faster the elevators went. First ever game addiction. Or maybe Mickey Mouse - Castle of Illusion.
Favorite Quote: I don't always test, but when I do, it's in production
Likes: Everything
Dislikes: Generalizations
Last Good Book I Read: Man of Everest
If I Could Have One Superhuman Ability, It Would Be: Real life Ctrl/Cmd+Z (or u .. for vimmers)

Thanks in advance for your tantalizing, insightful, and delicious comments.

I believe this game was called Elevator Action. They also made it for the Nintendo (8bit) & arcade.

Looking forward to seeing you around the forums, & becoming a part of our community! :D :^:

Ahhh close! Embarrassingly it's older than that. However, your post did lead me to the game I was thinking of... so I owe you a debt of gratitude.

For anyone interested, it's called 'Elevator' (marketing genius): http://www.youtube.c...h?v=ekYsaJ1Pg1M

Woah, flood of nostalgia - this forum's already paid for itself! :tup:

"The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror (37) is the 12th and its mirror (21) is the product of multiplying, 7 and 3. ... In binary, 73 is a palindrome, 1001001 which backwards is 1001001."
